Guitar Lessons In Vernal
Are you tired of not being able to play guitar and show off with your favorite songs? Does watching your favorite guitar players make you wonder, “How did they get to be so good?!” and “I want to be just like that!”? I used to watch guys who played guitar and saw how everyone around admired them and loved the music they played. I would think, “I’d LOVE to be that guy!”, but I had no idea what to do or where to turn to learn how to be like that…

I know how infuriating it is to practice and practice and feel like you’re getting nowhere. In fact, just about everybody goes through the same feelings when first learning guitar. I spent countless hours searching for things online, looking through books and videos, buying promising programs only to be let down, and scouring magazines to try to teach myself guitar. It was slow, painful, and not nearly as fun as it should’ve been. I ended up spending a lot of time PLAYING my guitar and learning songs, but never really progressing as fast as I wanted to.

I’ve seen this time and time again with students as well. They tell me how they spent their time trying to teach themselves by surfing the web for free information, buying every guitar book in sight, or wasting money on programs that didn’t deliver any real results so they felt lost never felt like they were getting anywhere. Let’s be honest, none of that stuff really works anyway.

Not All Guitar Lessons Are Created Equal

Electric Guitar Lessons In Vernal
"Traditional" guitar lessons can be so boring. You're likely to focus on only one, maybe two, aspects of guitar playing for a LONG time until that skill is mastered, then you finally begin to learn something else. The only problem is by that time you feel good about that one thing, you start on another skill and feel like a complete beginner again. This process is usually very long, boring, and most of all, unfulfilling.

Lucky for you, we don't follow the "traditional" methods for learning guitar. We avoid learning in a 'linear' way and focus on learning in a 'geometric' way to help you learn more things in a shorter amount of time, be able to actually play right away, and keep focused on what YOU want to be able to do. On top of that, we'll track your progress together to help you feel like you are getting better at the guitar and learning what you need to know in order to play how you want to play!

So many people have tried teaching guitar the same way that science or math is taught. The result has been 65% of students in traditional guitar lessons quit within their first year and 80% have quit before their second year is over. That's horrible. We go through the Geometric Guitar Teaching Method and have students getting big results and doing things 2 or 3 years ahead of expectations and playing for years and years longer than the average student.

When you come to The Rock Academy, you're not getting typical, cookie cutter lessons. We're not going to just plop the same book everyone else uses in front of you and go cover to cover. We're going to get to know you, discuss the things that you want to learn, and figure out a strategy to help you reach those goals quickly by taking a different approach than a typical guitar teacher.

The Biggest Myth About Learning Guitar

Beginner Guitar Lessons In Vernal
Probably the most damaging myth about learning the guitar is that "you need to know more stuff to be better". For example, students will say, "I need to know more scales!" but they haven't fully mastered the ones they do know. It doesn't take long to challenge them with what they already know before they realize that they don't really need to know more scales. They just need to know how to better use the things they already know.

A lot of guitar players, especially intermediate players, fall into the trap of thinking that if they know more "things", then they will automatically become better at playing guitar. When in reality, they haven't fully mastered the things they already know how to play. So they end up surfing the web, looking at tabs, watching videos on how do to more "things" on the guitar, but never really master the things they already know to really master the guitar.

The big thing that is lacking from following that approach is training on how to apply and integrate everything that you learn! Training on how to apply and integrate your skills together is the key to be able to fluently use the things you learn on the guitar. We will go over this kind of training in your guitar lessons to help you connect things together and really begin mastering the guitar and freely expressing yourself instead of being limited by only seeking out more "tricks" to play the guitar better.

4 Big Things Keeping You From
Getting Really Good At Guitar

Kids Guitar Lessons In Vernal
1. Not Having the Proper Mindset
One of the biggest things that holds many musicians back and keeps them from being able to play at the level they desire is not having the proper mindset. When it comes down to practicing and learning your instrument, if you don't start with an intense desire to achieve what you want and then BELIEVE that you can do it, you'll never be a great player. At The Rock Academy, we understand how important this is and seek to harness your mindset in order to help you get bigger results from your guitar lessons.

2. Unclear or Unspecific Goals
When it comes to reaching high levels of playing you have to have clear, specific goals set. If you don't, it's like leaving on a trip and not knowing what your destination is! Our teachers will help you set challenging, specific goals to help you reach your full potential.

3. Bad Habits and Poor Technique
Most people who've tried learning on their own suffer from developing lots of bad habits and poor guitar technique. This greatly damages your playing potential and limits how far you'll progress. By learning to use proper technique like you'll learn with guitar lessons at The Rock Academy in Vernal, your potential for playing will exponentially increase and help you play like you never dreamed you could.

4. Not knowing what to do and in what order
Let's face it, there are tons of different resources (websites, books, videos, etc) that talk about how to play guitar. Especially when you're trying to learn on your own it can be overwhelming with the amount of information out there and easy to get lost in it all. Without knowing what things are important for you to do and when to do them to help you reach your goals you'll end up swimming in a sea of information and never really getting anywhere. In your guitar lessons we'll take all the guesswork out of it and do the navigating for you so you can focus on what's most important for you to be doing to help you become the guitar player you want to be.

Guitar Lessons Done Differently

What if instead you had an expert, trained teacher to help you every step of the way so you can learn guitar faster and have a lot more fun along the way? Wouldn’t you like to avoid the frustration and pain of the ‘trial and error’ approach?

Teen Guitar Lessons In Vernal
Can you imagine what that would do for you? How much faster would you be able to play your favorite songs, impress your friends, and really feel like you’re getting where you want to go? With our trained, professional teachers and the exclusive teaching strategies, we’ll work with you to remove any roadblocks in your way, unlock your true potential as a musician, and help you reach your goals faster.

What you need is someone who knows how to get you where you want to go with your guitar playing…Someone with a plan and a strategy to take you step by step down the path of becoming the guitar player you want to be…And then you need that someone to be right there with you holding your hand through the entire process and making sure you’re on track.

Learning to play guitar, especially on your own, can be very difficult and frustrating, but I have found that learning guitar doesn't have to be a painful process! In fact, with the help of a knowledgable, experienced, and trained teacher you'll have more fun, get results faster, and save yourself a lot of time AND frustration!

It’s not your fault that you’re not at the level you’d like to be at yet. How are you supposed to know what to do and where to go without any help? You deserve more than watching videos on YouTube, or just trying to play tabs off the internet, and you deserve better than traditional guitar lessons. Don’t take the long, difficult path to learning guitar; let us help you get where you want to be faster and we’ll make sure you have fun along the way!

How is what we do different from your average guitar lesson?
  • Your first lesson is free! We invite you to come to our school for a FREE, NO OBLIGATION assessment guitar lesson to 1) get to know us in person, 2) discuss your musical goals and how guitar lessons can help you reach them, 3) discuss all the different components of lessons (options, programs, pricing, etc.), and 4) see if we’re going to be the right fit for each other. If you like what you experience in this assessment lesson, we'll move forward with regular lessons. If you decide that you'd rather not continue with lessons, no harm done, but I am confident that we can find something that will work for you!
  • Customization. You won't get 'cookie-cutter', 'one-size-fits-all' guitar lessons. Your lessons will be based around your goals and interests as opposed to blindly showing you random things to play on the guitar and never understanding how it works with what you want to do.
  • Flexibility. Scheduling is easier than ever before. We have options for scheduling that can accommodate just about any schedule so that you can learn to master guitar and still keep your other commitments.
  • Choose from a growing list of programs and options.
  • Track your progress. We'll keep track of your practicing, goals, and progress on various things so that you will feel the traction that you're gaining from taking guitar lessons. we will also keep track of the things you've learned and use a 'roadmap' to keep track of what things you need to learn and when as we go.
  • Lots and lots of training. Most people think guitar lessons is all about learning 'stuff'. Wrong. Learning guitar is more about knowing how to use the things you already know than it is about learning more things. Anybody can learn more information, especially with the internet these days, but can you receive the custom, personal, essential training that's needed to master the things you've learned? Can you integrate all the different things you know together? With the proper training, not just information, you'll progress so much faster than trying to just learn new 'things'.
  • Exclusive, student-only bonuses. Get special access to extra bonuses only available to Rock Academy students, including special student only parties, exclusive workshops, masterclasses, clinics, and more!

Advanced Guitar Lessons In Vernal
Hi. My name is Brad Litton and I’m a professional musician. I taught myself for years, but when I found an excellent teacher who knew how to take me from where I was to where I wanted to be, it transformed my guitar playing. That’s why my team of teachers and I are here to help you by offering the best guitar lessons in Vernal! We'll give you the kind of guitar lessons I wish I had when I started out!

Did you know that 92% of guitar teachers have ZERO training on how to teach? They may be able to play well themselves, but their teaching methods are usually either “This is how I learned, so this is how I'll teach you”, or you get to be their guinea pig as they learn to teach through trial and error. A music degree doesn't guarantee any kind of teaching training either.

Our teachers are trained on
how to actually teach and get big results for our students. We are the ONLY school in the Uintah Basin with Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle trained and certified teachers. That means you are getting the absolute best guitar instruction available from top shelf guitar teachers you can’t find anywhere else.

We do more than just give out stuff to work on (content) and follow up on it every week.
We go through the entire Mastery Process to make sure you really understand, can use, and have mastered the things we're talking about. Typical lessons go by the "Here's your stuff for this week, now go home and practice" then the next week "Here's your stuff for this week, now go home and practice" and so on week after week after week. If you don’t go through the entire Mastery Process it leads to 2 things:
1) Overwhelm, because you get new stuff every single week and never feel like you’ve mastered anything, so you quickly become overwhelmed and quit.
2) Students who may be able to do a few things, but have big gaps in their abilities and knowledge.

Q: I have no experience with music at all, can I learn guitar?
Yes. No previous experience is necessary at all. We’ll walk you through every step from the beginning until you become the guitar player you want to be.

Q: How long will it take me to get good?
This depends on a few things. 1) How dedicated are you to learning and mastering guitar? 2) How much work are you willing to put in? 3) Are you going to do things the way we tell you to do them? The average guitar student in traditional guitar lessons takes about 10 years to reach an advanced level on the guitar. We have students reaching the same level in 3 years, but it all depends on you and how much you are committed to making that happen. Of course, we’ll be with you every step of the way making sure you’re mastering everything you learn along the way because we’re committed to helping you master guitar.

Q: I’ve been struggling with teaching myself, can you help me?
Yes, of course. I taught myself for 10 years, so I know how frustrated you must be. We have many students who come in saying the felt lost or stuck on their own. We help get them unstuck and find their way to becoming a rock solid guitar player.

Q: Traditional guitar lessons have failed me in the past, can you help me?
We have lots of students who’ve had lessons before and been let down by the traditional approach to guitar. It’s not long before they realize that what we do is different and better than what they’ve experienced before. We even had one student who said, “I’ve learned more in two months than I did with my other teachers in two years!” That’s a pretty common thing we hear.

Q: Should I get an electric guitar or an acoustic guitar to start out with?
Electric, hands down. Electric guitar is easier to learn on at first because of a thinner neck that’s easier to grip, lighter gauged strings, not to mention that the electric guitar is just plain cool. If you have any amount of desire to play electric guitar at some point, it’s best to start out with it. If you only want to play acoustic guitar, that’s cool and you’ll be fine starting out, but if you want every advantage you can get, starting out on electric will make your life easier.

Q: Do you only work with kids? Or do you take adult students?
We work with kids ages 8 and up and, of course, we take adult students. Contrary to popular belief, we’ve found that adults pick up the guitar just as fast (if not faster) than kids do. Don’t put it off if you’ve been wanting to play since you were a kid, now’s the time for you to finally learn guitar.

Q: What instruments do you teach?
We specialize in teaching guitar. We’re the only guitar school in Vernal and we have students who play electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and bass guitar.

Q: Do you teach ukulele?
No, we specialize in teaching guitar. However, the ukulele is extremely similar to the guitar and if you learn guitar it’s only a couple minor changes to be able to play the uke. By learning guitar you automatically learn 99% of what you need to know to play ukulele.

Q: What styles do you teach?
We focus on modern contemporary guitar styles: rock, metal, blues, jazz, pop, acoustic, and folk. We do not offer classical guitar lessons nor do we specialize in country lead guitar though we do have many students who play country rhythm guitar.

Q: How much is it going to cost me?
That's a fair question, but the bigger question you should ask yourself is, "How much time, frustration, money on scam programs you'll never finish, etc., will it cost you if you DON'T take this opportunity to study guitar with an experienced, knowledgeable, proven teacher?" I have found that you get what you pay for, if you only want to pay $5/lesson, you'll get a $5 education. A guitar lesson here is not the same as a guitar lesson from any other teacher. What normally takes students in traditional lessons 10 years to achieve, we do in 3 years.

So you have to ask yourself some questions: Is it worth it to you? Is this something that you want badly enough? Are you willing to invest the time and money it will take to reach your goals? If you're willing to do anything then we can do a lot of different things to help you reach your goals quickly, but if there's only so much room in your budget we can find something that will work for you still.

Everybody is different and we offer different programs and options to accommodate as many people as possible and I'm confident that we can find a solution that will fit your goals and your budget. We do not give prices over email, phone, or "ball park" figures because of the many different programs and options we offer, there really is no way for me to know exactly what will work for you without assessing you first. I prefer to have you right in front of me so we can discuss your goals and what will be needed to reach those goals.

Here’s what students are saying
about their lessons at The Rock Academy:

I learned so much and made strides I never would have made on my own. Plus, loved the awesome people I met there :)
Janell C.

I am super excited! I've been very limited to about 15 chords, and where they and a capo can take me in my songwriting, so I started taking guitar lessons again. I have to give thanks to The Rock Academy for asking the right questions on what I felt I needed improvement in, and truly listening to my answer...an answer I thought sounded rather broad and confused. I know I said I needed help with different strumming patterns, so that every song doesn't end up sounding the same. Anyhow, in just my first few lessons I learned about timing, beats, strumming patterns, accents on patterns, and 12 new chords to add to my repertoire. So after an extremely dry spell in songwriting, I FINALLY have a new tune!! And it's completely different sounding than anything I've ever written, because it's all new chords, and it's a waltz! I've never written a waltz or anything in 3/4. Frankly, I don't even know what any of my songs are in...I just write and play mainly by ear. So, it's pretty cool to write a song in 3/4 with all new chords, strumming, and accents. Now it just needs words. :)
Melissa A., Singer/Songwriter

Very good music school. My daughter struggles with academics and is excelling at The Rock Academy. They take time to teach and are patient to help the student learn properly and become successful.
Aleta L.

My experience with The Rock Academy was nothing but pleasant. I received grade A guitar training and music theory that was tailored specifically to my style and musical tastes. The instruction was innovative and always invigorating. There was never a moment that I felt I was struggling yet I could always see improvement in my skills as a musician. The Rock Academy is the absolute best music training I have experienced.
Nick V.

I’ve learned more in two months than I did with my other teachers in two years!
Alex G.
I look forward to lessons and I get excited about it because I know I'll be better than I was the week before.
Blake T.

Before I started guitar lessons I thought it would be slower to learn than teaching my self…I think it's better than just learning by yourself because you have someone to guide you.
Andy E.
I have learned more on the guitar than I ever thought possible. The teachers are incredible! The students are such an inspiration to me!
